We think Salt-N-Pepa probably put it best when they said: why do you gotta get into who she’s givin’ skins to?

It’s none of ya business!

Still, Queen Latifah’s private life and who she’s giving skins to IS an often times talked about topic, with many suggesting that the multi-talented entertainer is gay but very much in the closet.

On Monday morning, the Queen sat down with Howard Stern. And when you sit down with Howard, there is no subject that’s off the table!

The shock jock extraordinaire eased his way into discussing what happens behind closed doors by asking why she chooses to not talk about her personal life.

Queen Latifah explained to Howard:

People's Choice Awards 2014: Queen Latifah walks the red carpet

Whyyyyy?!

Queen Latifah has had a huge body transformation, but you'd never know it from her People's Choice Awards' ensemble.

The actress walked the red carpet in the baggiest black frock she could find, but you know what? It's okay because just look at that smile!

While some brillz pearly whites can't fix a bad outfit choice, they can at least distract, and Miz Latifah's hair and makeup were FAB! Loving that dark lipstick!

Black shoes and a silver clutch were the perfect finishing touches.

Maybe just pick a better dress next time!
